"It occurred in the middle of the
night. He got a very severe attack
of croup. As luck would have it, I
had a large bottle of Chamberlain's
cough remedy in the house. After
following the directions for an hour
and twenty minutes he was through
all danger." Sold by all dealers.
Avoid Sedative Cough Medi
If you want to contribute direct
ly to the occurrence of capillary
bronchitis and pneumonia use cough
medicines that contain codine, mor
phine, heroin and other sedatives
when you have a cough or cold. An
expectorant like Chamberlain's
cough remedy is what is needed.
That cleans out the culture beds or
breeding places for the germs of
pneumonia and other germ diseases.
That is why pneumonia never re
sults from a cold when Chamber
lain's cough remedy is used. It has
a world wide reputation for itt*
cures. It contains no morphine or
other sedative. For sale by all deal
